What is your passion?
My three biggest loves are my family, my job, and of course some entertainment! My beautiful fiancée, Monica, my 7-year-old son, Jackson, and our two puppies mean the world to me. Our fun and entertainment comes from simply being together, but I also enjoy traveling, delicious food, and my motorcycle. Team Recovery, my non-profit that I co-founded in 2015, is also a huge part of my life. It is a volunteer organization that focuses on prevention, treatment linkage, and family support.
What is the most rewarding part of your work?
The best part of my job is seeing families heal as their addicted loved one recovers is one of the most rewarding things I get to see in this field. Watching people change is truly a blessing… to first meet them only “existing” and watch them successfully graduate “living.” They now have the ability and responsibility to help someone else who is still suffering. Working together as a cohesive unit to achieve a goal is something that has always meant so much to me, and we get to do it every single day in an effort to make peoples’ lives better.
What makes Midwest stand out?
Midwest is a great place to change, but a terrible place to remain the same. Our expectations and standards are set high for our clients, but also for our staff, because many of our staff have lived it. We realize everyone’s process looks different, however, I know for a fact that when someone walks into our agency, they walked into the best place to set them up for a beautiful life beyond their wildest imagination.
